Welcome to the Office of International Study

Take a moment to look at the Study Abroad Photo Contest Finalists' incredible work and learn about their study abroad experiences. 

About 45% of Wellesley College juniors elect to study abroad for a semester or a year. Motivation for study abroad is as diverse as our student population. Many students study abroad to perfect a foreign language, or to conduct field research, or to gain a new perspective on their major. Others seek the opportunity to study in a major research university, live in an urban setting or to experience life in a developing country. Whatever your goals, the Office of International Study wants to work with you to match with with the most appropriate host university or study abroad program for an experience that will challenge you and provide you with the opportunity to grow as a global citizen.
